Removing stale feeds

I've subscribed to around 175 RSS feeds in Bloglines, and I realised that many feeds are no longer updated. I now have the painful job of going through the list and removing those that are no longer updated. There must be a better way to do this.

The Long Tail of Features: Why you should make your product hackable

Simple and usable? Or complex and feature-rich? Users crave simplicity — but with all their favourite features. Worse, every user has a different set of favourite features. How can we satisfy everyone, yet keep the product simple and elegant? Thats the dilemma in product design. In my other blog, I try to solve this problem. Check out The Long Tail of Features: Why you should make your product hackable.

Silver Stripe Software

I got my company name approved recently: Silver Stripe Software. With that done, I registered the domain name and setup the Silver Stripe blog there. I've copied over the posts on agile development and catalyst. New posts about catalyst and agile will come on that blog, so if you are interested in development methodologies or catalyst, subscribe to this feed. Other stuff like python and programming will continue on this blog, plus some common interest posts may be cross-posted between the blogs.

Why did I choose the name Silver Stripe Software?

Silver: Elegant, sophisticated, minimalist, smooth.
Stripe: Stand out/rarity (single stripe in plain colour), rank (military stripes)
Software: :)

Next on the agenda: Do the website and complete the beta version of the software. In the meantime, here is the About Me page.
